The heartbeat of Redwood Highway is a love story deferred: soul mates who never got off the starting blocks, and the effect that has on them and their relationships for the rest of their lives. It is the story of 76 year old Marie (Shirley Knight) who hasn't seen the ocean in forty-five years but who isn?t too old to grow and change. She represents all of those wonderful, resilient people who lost someone far too young. In order to confront an earlier heartbreaking event and attend to her granddaughter's wedding, she decides to walk 80 miles along the spectacular Redwood Highway. Along the way she encounters people who help her heal her heart, and find the courage to see her journey through to the end, including a kind woodworker named Pete (Tom Skerritt).
Redwood Highway is a passion project for the well known Author/Writer/Producer James Twyman, the founder of Senior Cinema Circle which focuses on multi-generational movies. Twyman said, The senior audience is growing every day, and it?s very important for me to address this audience.?
